Smooth, cool, eccentric and definitely 'Jazzy.' These words best decribe the jazz pianist/composer Robert Swift. Robert was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, graduated from Douglass High School and later attended Bishop College in Dallas, Texas, on a music scholarship. In 1972 he was awarded a Bachelor of Music Degree. He later attended Texas Christian University (TCU) in Fort Worth, Texas and was awarded a Master of Music Education Degree. Robert served in the U.S. Air Force for seven years. During his military career, He conducted music workshops at various Air Bases and presented concerts locally and throughout South Korea. Robert appeared in many social functions in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and internationally including Egypt,Morocco,Sudan,Ethiopia, and Eriteria from 1988-2000. Robert was a Postal Letter Carrier for seven years before joining the Fort Worth Public School District in which he served as a teacher for 12 years. This new album entitled, 'CHI' is a high energy dance music, especially the first four selections could be use for party time, gym exercise, or listening. Jazzy Jazz Piano selection is smooth and 'laid back' with a lot of surprises. I Need Your Love Right Now, is a selection that you will remember, the tune is very 'catchy' but real. It also features an acoustic guitar and xylophone. The selection ' Envision ' takes you into an ambient world of freedom and expressiveness. The selection 'Sunburst' is very imaginary with sounds of great energy bursting throughout the universe.The selection 'New Life' gives one the feeling of relief and starting a new beginning,the Ethnic Flute adds color and texture to this sound and the second Flute adds the smooth legato,rubato style to the motif. Finally, I hope you enjoy this album for your listening pleasure. ENJOY THE MUSIC!
